French Croc's FutureVision

Wikipedia's article on the Lacoste apparel company says it was founded by Rene Lacoste, a French tennis player dubbed "the Alligator" by American journalists covering the 1923 Davis Cup. And here I thought "Lacoste" was French for crocodile.

Now I don't reflexively hate the French, like some of some of the un-dead my fellow Americans.

But, is there any doubt that this ad could only come from a French ad agency?

Where else would they envision the athlete of the future as white plastic human-locust chimera?
